Roofing Shingle Shortages in Matthews During the Pandemic

If you've been looking for a new roof in Matthews, North Carolina, then you may be aware that there's a shortage of roofing shingles in the greater Charlotte metro area.

So when a Matthews Roofing Company places a shingle order with a manufacturer, it could take a couple of weeks for the order to come in or it might not be possible to get that type of shingle at all in the current market.

If you're working with the wrong roofing company, that company could be cutting corners and installing a lower quality brand on your roof as a substitution for what you were expecting in the contract you signed with that company.

These shingle shortages can happen for a variety of reasons, but some contractors in this market are substituting lower quality shingles into their contracts but telling their customers that they're actually getting an upgraded shingle compared to what was in the contract.

In other cases, they could simply be substituting in any type of shingle they can get.

That could put you in a difficult situation where you're asked to make a last minute decision to accept a substitute product that may not perform the way you expect it to.

When you contact High Top Roofing, we'll work with you and agree on a high quality shingle brand that we'll include by name in our contract.

If we place an order and can't get that particular brand right away, we'll encourage you to wait for it to come in.

We're simply not willing to use a substitute brand that may not be the same high quality that you were expecting.

If you're pressed for time and want to substitute another roofing shingle, we'll take the time to educate you on the quality differences of any shingle you might be considering for substitution.

And at the end of the day, you can make the call on whether or not to make a substitution, but we want you to have the best information to make an informed decision.

If you're in the market for a new roof in Matthews during the pandemic, don't accept a lower quality roofing shingle because of the shingle shortage during the pandemic.
